Teaching & Learning

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.

What you'll learn

This module considers the analysis, design and maintenance of highways - you will study areas such as route location, geometrics, junction and pavement design, and management. You will also examine the design and operation of airports and railways.
Explore the broad range of management and procedural considerations that apply to the development and delivery of a civil engineering project.
You will gain a greater understanding of the engineering principles applied to the analysis and design of structures, giving you the skills and confidence to apply these techniques.
In this module you will focus on the properties of fluids and the principles of fluid mechanics, hydraulic modelling and fluid systems analysis. You will develop an understanding of the issues, problems and solutions within the water infrastructure sector of civil engineering. Please note that from September 2019, this module title will change to Water Engineering & Fluid Mechanics.
You will learn to produce complex engineering solutions to a professional standard. We will provide you with an in-depth understanding of engineering principles in relation to geotechnical analysis and design, looking at how to solve geotechnical engineering problems and produce innovative designs.
We will increase your understanding of the uncertainties and consequences of material behaviour during design, manufacture and in service. You'll study the environmental and safety implications of the materials used for nuclear power production.
This is an in-depth study of a topic relevant to civil engineering and that reflects your specific interests. This is an opportunity to apply and further enhance your research skills and technical knowledge.
